    I wish I had taken a picture of this. If I have a cigar that goes real dry, like cracking dry, I tend to pull the cigar apart and put it into a ziploc bag so I can mix it with pipe tobacco. It gives it that extra little kick. Today, I noticed that I had a cigar that had been in my 2-finger...

    Ok... So I come home from camping all dirty, sweaty, and tired to find a suspicious package at my door. I opened the package and... After digging myself out from the rubble and checking in here, I realized that Shuckins apparently launched a cluster bomb over the US last week and one of his...

    I've noticed some cigars (given same wrapper, series, & filler) seem to taste different given their ring size. Example, the Havana IV Tats in the 50 x 5" vs 5.6 x 46. I notice a slightly sweeter taste with the 46rg than the 50, where as the 50rg I get a stronger nutty flavor. Is this mainly...

    I've heard of tupperware as filler for an emtpy humidor, are there any other suggestions to use up some space in my humidor until I start to fill her up with some sticks?

    Details: Wrapper: 10-year aged Nicaraguan Natural Maduro Filler: Nicaraguan Binder: Nicaraguan Size: 5.5 X 54 Toro Cost: $10 (Got it out of the buy 1 get 1 free cabinet so really only $5.) Prelight:(10) The first thing that attracted me to this cigar was it's band. For a minute I thought it...
  6. Cigar Questions
    What does it mean when a description states mixed or blended filler? Is that a combination of short and long fillers or does it just mean filler from more than one area? I.e. The RyJ Reserva Real claims to add Nic. Long filler to the Honduran blend. Is the Honduran short fill or just from...

    Wondering if the smaller cheaper ones (Londres, Delicias) are mixed filler.

    Tried to search this but no luck unless I did something wrong. What is the difference between long/short filler cigars. Thanks for the help
  9. Cigar Questions
    I had an odd cigar experience just now and figured I'd run it by the pros since a search failed me. I had a 5 Vegas Gold Nugget a few minutes ago and it had a dense black patch in the filler that apparently ran from end to end since I could see it on both ends after the cut. It was as if...

    These don't look and feel machine made, judging by the wrapper which has that rustic cuban look and feel to it. But the short filler is what you w... Read the full review here: Guantanamera Puritos Cigar Review - Decent short filler smoke for 15 minutes
  11. General Cigar Discussion
    Hi, I have tried about 12 different cigars thus far. I was not a smoker before my recent venture into cigars. I have found that I have enjoyed the short filler cigars much better than the long filler cigars. My understanding is that most if not all of the short filler cigars are machine...

    Firstly I apologise for the lack of pictures, I didn't have a camera to hand... I fired up a 5 Vegas Series A Archetype last night at a friends house. Started off ok, good burn, good ash but nothing amazing flavour-wise... After about 2 inches it tasted terrible, very acrid, so i knocked off...

    These are NOT Taboo Cigar blends This is a limited time deal on some blends from a friends factory in the Dominican. Their customer refused the order after the cigars were made. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with the cigars. It was the packaging they were not happy with. We have smoked...

    I just found this out the other day, was it just me or did anyone else think it was all long filler?

  16. Cigar Questions
    Not sure how to describe this, but I had a couple of smokes today where the wrapper wasn't burning down with the filler tobacco. It happened a few times throught each smoke. Did I light them incorrectly, were they too humid, bad construction or something else? I broke out the lighter and lit...

    I was looking at some yard-gar type cigarsm, and saw some described as having a "sandwich" filler. What does this mean? Is there any good on-line sources that would teach me more about how cigars are made? Thanks!

    First off I would like to thank mikedaddy for giving me the chance to smoke this cigar pre-release, and Arganese Cigars. So Last night, pairing with a Dom. Rum, I sat down to smoke this with an open mind, and lemme tell you, I was very surprised at how tasty this cigar was. Now note! This cigar...

    I'm sure this guy is full of :BS but I just had someone tell me that Cuban cigars are now using Dominican filler. I really doubt this is true but I wanted to ask my fellow apes and get the real story on this
